Modeling blood flow - FloWorks
Greetings - I'm involved in using FloWorks to model surface blood flows when the skin is exposed to high frequency thermal stimulation. My intent is to define the material of the containment vessels to reflect properties of arteries, veins, and capillaries ( thermal conductivity, thermal expansion coefficient, elastic modulus, and Poissonís ratio), as well as defining the thermal conductivity of the skin and tissue immediately under it.
And now, the burning question :confused: Can I vary the pressure & flow rate to simulate blood flow by either linking to data contained in a spreadsheet or by using equations to relate those parameters to time?
Thanks for any comments / thoughts - Dennis
